AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Improving precision management of acute infections and sepsis as a major burden to healthcare systems

Key areas of unmet medical need:

- Improve identification of patients at high risk for sepsis

- Improve characterization of patients with sepsis (endotyping)

- Predict outcomes of acute infections and/or sepsis at the time of presentation

- Develop companion diagnostics (biomarkers?) that identify patients responding to specific sepsis therapies

- Improve early diagnosis of pathogens causing sepsis and their resistance profile
